European Media Research Group
Television Talk
A One-Day Conference at The University of Southampton, February 13,
The increasing number of talk and discussion shows on contemporary
television raises questions about their role in a visual medium, and
about the specific forms and structures of television talk in
different genres and national and industrial contexts. The primary
focus of the conference will be on European televisions but
comparative approaches encompassing other geographical areas are
welcomed. Issues relating to the historical and industrial development
of the media, such as the relationship and roles of television and
radio talk will also be considered. Papers may focus on non-fiction
genres such as talk-shows, discussion/magazine programmes, women's
programmes, news and documentaries, and game-shows and  on themes such
as the following:
the nature of television talk, gender, race and class, the audience in
the text, audiences talking, the mode of address to the audience, the
`real' audience, the shifting roles of radio and television talk...
Please send proposals for twenty minute papers to:
Dr. Lucy Mazdon, School of Modern Languages, University of
Southampton, Highfield, Southampton, SO17 1DX. Tel: 01703 595435
